GO Transit-Helping People Stay Connected with Free WiFi

There are many cities offering free WiFi and more are jumping on the free WiFi access to their residents and visitors. One such place that has gone to Free WiFi is GO Transit with new installations and maintenance programs of the WiFi equipment at many GO Transit stations and bus terminals.

By February 1, 2015, 36 GO Stations will offer free Internet service. All customers have to do is select Free WiFi at GO by IMA as their network option. Customers must go through the one brief advertisement, but this is a small price to pay to be able to access mail and the Internet, free of charge. GO is part of Metrolinx and is the public transit service, servicing Toronto and Hamilton areas. Over 60 million people will now be able to connect to the Internet free of charge.

GO Transit started out in 1967 offering the public one route running along Lake Ontario’s shoreline. Now GO Transit has grown into a web of train lines and bus routes servicing people in the Toronto and Hamilton areas. Millions of people rely on Go every day to get to work, school, shopping, appointments, sightseeing and more.

    Out of 10 people on the train, 9 probably have data plan and are connected anyway, so this step is predominantly useless, it should have been done 10-15 years ago.
    But oil have dropped to nearly half its price but Go transit just hiked the price up, how about that?

    I did inquire about price hike. Customer rep told me they getting better and building all around GTA. I do believe that, but I only use 1 line and not ready to subsidize their construction all around. If they force me to do that, I want to share their revenues once they have more lines and hence more customers.

    I think they should be regulated because in the last 10 years the price doubled and I see no improvement at all on my line, it was bad (late, slow, etc) and still such.

    So for our fare increase, second or third major one in less that two years I believe, we get wifi in the stations? Big deal! How about making the train doors close in the winter? That would be a good use of the amount of money/effort instead. I’m sure there was a multi million dollar study to determine that wifi is needed in the stations for those poor souls that have to spend more than an half hour at the station. Really ?? The recent fare increase is making me wonder about alternatives to taking the train now. Are the fare increase’s going to happen every year until no one can afford the train any more ?
